It is the double-height living room on the lower level that morphs into the heart and soul of the home with the dining area and kitchen on one side and the open outdoors on the other. Connected with the backyard pool area and the sweeping deck it has a relaxing outdoorsy feel and the open design with large glass doors and windows enhances this airy ambiance.
Windows were kept to a bare minimum with just three large windows on the main living area offering scenic views of the mountain terrain outside. A smart air circulation system and a black corrugated steel exterior make the home even more energy-efficient.
While the cedar section contains the guest rooms and the courtyards the structure clad in stone holds the living areas and a unique art collection. Combining the essence of the panoramic rustic scenery around it with a distinct contemporary vibe this charming residence offers the best of both worlds!
The staircase is often viewed as just a functional addition and few homeowners really pay attention to the aesthetic style it delivers. Fewer actually turn the stairway into the focal point of the sparkling modern home and let it define the ambiance of the interior. Accomplishing this with refined contemporary panache is the lovely South designed by Mitsuori Architects and this stunning abode places emphasis on a posh multi-zone family setting. The double-story terrace house was revamped and refurbished to bring in a trendier look and its sculpted timber stairs end up being the showstopper!
